Hosta 'Triple Ripple'

Registered by Dr. Ed Elslager of Michigan in 2005, this cultivar is a seedling of an unnamed seedling of H. 'Dorothy Benedict'. It is a large size hosta about 20 inches high with a spread of around 52 inches. The foliage is blue-green with a chartreuse colored marginal variegation. Its leaves are heavily rippled, ovate, moderately corrugated and has thick substance. Near white flowers bloom in July on scapes up to 34 inches tall.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Unfortunately, the chartreuse margin does not really stand out and can easily be mistaken for heat stress or a nutrient deficiency."
